The new book "Letters From Young Activists: Today's Rebels Speak Out" 
might provide the some insight into what's "in between and outside of 
that frame."  The letters provide a cross-section of the conversations 
going on among the new generation of activists in the US (and those 
working internationally).  Letters like: "Dear Secretary of State 
Condolezza Rice," "Dear Dad, (from Chesa Boudin to his father David 
Gilbert)," "Dear Punk Rock Activism" and "Dear Young Africanist."

Run, don't walk, to your local independent bookstore to get it,
